I prefer making macarons to eating them. There.  I’ve said it.  I generally find them too sweet for my taste.  I hear gasps of horror and disbelief.  Believe it.  It’s almost considered sacrilege to admit something like that, isn’t it??  I’m a brave soul so I’ll stand my ground.  I do find the process of making them to be very...

It has been a while since I posted a chocolate-centric recipe.  Too long.  Some might say way way too long!   So long in fact, you’d think I’m lying when I profess my devotion to all things cacao.   This cannot continue.  What better way to right this wrong than with a decadent chocolate mousse?
